London International Shipping Week 2021 Update
TRANSPARENCEY IN BUNKERING FORUM
If your job involves buying, selling, using, or dealing with marine fuels from a financial or legal angle, join Petrospot’s Transparency in Bunkering Forum on Monday13 September at 2:00 pm, the first day of London International Shipping Week (LISW21).
The much-anticipated in-person event will take place at leading maritime law firm Norton Rose Fulbright.
All participants will be invited to a spectacular rooftop champagne reception overlooking Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, HMS Belfast, and the River Thames.
With the headline theme of transparency, the Forum will examine the highly competitive, low margin business of bunkering, first from an operational viewpoint, looking at bunker licensing, mass flow metering, fuel quality and pricing; and then from a commercial and financial viewpoint, looking at due diligence, banking, credit lines, credit and trade insurance and the benefits of digitalisation.
The panel discussions will feature thought leaders representing ExxonMobil, Lloyd’s Register, Island Oil, Shipping Strategy, Markel International, S&P Global Platts, Propeller Fuels, Awyr Las, The Signal Group, Bunkerspot, Ship.energy, the International Bunker Industry Association, and the Marine Fuels Alliance.REGISTER HEREVIEW THE PROGRAMME
DECARBONISATION HAS THE POWER TO CHANGE SHIPPING’S FUTURE FOR THE BETTER
Decarbonisation is a massive opportunity for shipping to reclaim its proper value and regain a positive world status, according to maritime lawyer Rachel Hoyland, a senior associate with Hill Dickinson with a specialist interest in environmental matters.
Delivering the latest in the popular London Talks series of video reports, Ms Hoyland considers: “Shipping has ceased to be celebrated for carrying the exotic, rare and luxurious. While becoming an essential prop to everyday life, it has faded into an unapplauded, industrialised backdrop – an industry of ever squeezed margins and plummeting rates. But could decarbonisation offer lift to this narrative?”READ MORE
London International Shipping Week 2021’s Headline Conference, Driving Growth in a Disrupted World, will be held in-person at the impressive headquarters of the International Maritime Organization – the heart of global maritime regulation – on Wednesday 15 September 2021.
Thought leaders from across the international maritime industry and government will focus on driving recovery across the sector after the disruption caused by Covid-19. Global shipping issues will be hotly debated from the perspective of trade, technology, innovation, environment, finance, governance and, most importantly, the people engaged with the international maritime industry.
The LISW21 Headline Conference will be followed by a Evening Reception on the rooftop terrace of the IMO, kindly sponsored by HM Government of Gibraltar, the Gibraltar Maritime Administration and the Gibraltar Port Authority. This spectacular networking opportunity is available exclusively to signed up in-person conference delegates.
With spaces at the IMO limited by the number of seats available in the auditorium, you are advised to book your in-person ticket early to avoid disappointment.
The LISW21 Headline Conference will be live streamed through the LISW21 Portal for those unable to travel to London, so don’t worry, you can still attend virtually!
